Re: BIGGER Roofing Problems

Thank you for your insights. The house has a shingle roof. We are really wondering if the house is worth the repairs. We figure it will need new roofing (metal), all new insulation and new ceiling drywall and plaster. We figure it was last leveled when it was 'placed' Releveling is not a big busines...

Re: BIGGER Roofing Problems

Each of these photos was taken just about right under the marriage seam looking towards the front of the house. The vaulted roof would make the water look like it was running to the lower ends. These are new stains since the roof repair

Re: BIGGER Roofing Problems

WOW! Thanks Greg. Honest, it's on both sides now and in every room there is a brown elongated stain. It's like it runs from back to front not side to side. IF it is the marriage seam seperating what am I looking at there? This is going from a very bad dream to a nightmare!

Re: Kitchen Cabinets

Saw on one of the MH improvements sites....homeowner took a gel stain and went over the kitchen cabinets, left the woodgrain, but gave it a tint they were happy with. Put a coat of clear sealant over it looks nice. They posted before and after pixs. Looked great....just something I saw.

Question - Pex lines

As we are going about looking at NEW mobile homes I'm hearing (without me bringing up the topic) that we don't want PEX plumbing in our new home, that the opaque lines are much better. I understood that PEX is superior to the opaque lines. Am I getting a snow job or misunderstanding that PEX is bett...
